Rusted chrome handles, what's best?
I have a early 70s Yardman, pre MTD, I believe they call it C3, 3rd generation, nice machine, heavy steel, metal round chute and gears, 12" impeller, 24", no engine but I have a 8hp Tecumseh to put on it.
Rust can be removed from painted metal in various ways but what do I do about the chrome handlebars? It would seem sending them somewhere for re-chroming would be expensive!!!??? Do I wire brush them down, sand, and spray paint them? Any idea what re-chroming costs?
